Moving beyond our comfort zone is how we can best learn and grow.
To develop the courage to take a leap, and the skill and ability to actually pull it off:
Understand what’s in it for you to motivate yourself. Brainstorm how working on this tough behaviour — networking, perhaps, or public speaking — can advance your career or help you reach other goals.
Then, customise a plan to take control of a situation instead of being overwhelmed by it. If, for example, you’re an introvert who dreads networking events, instead of feeling pressured to meet everyone, focus on a few people and actually try to get to know them, or aim to make initial contacts with the goal of following up in a more comfortable setting.
